The CSR wheel's buttons are laid out intuitively and fall nicely under the thumb.

Fanatec CSR shifter

Users attach the shifters to the body of the wheel on this two-rail mounting system. When shifting quickly, this whole assembly can rotate quite a bit, contributing to the inaccuracy of the shifter.
